qmail not sending


Hey everyone

I recently installed qmail v1.03 and installed and configured it and it was all working perfectly BUT... now, for some reason, I can't get it past the queue.

I installed it as per the LWQ guide (Documentation for QMail) but can't figure it out.

Are all the processes running?

AFAIR there is a page in the documentation that shows you all the preoccesses that should be running and the users they should be running as.

Can yu remember anything happening about the time it stopped working? Has the server been rebooted? Have you installed any other software?

I checked that the services are running and yeah they are... to be exact:

[qmailcontrol stat]
/service/qmail-send: up (pid 4290) 301 seconds
/service/qmail-send/log: up (pid 6531) 1 seconds
/service/qmail-smtpd: up (pid 6532) 0 seconds
/service/qmail-smtpd/log: up (pid 4288) 301 seconds
messages in queue: 2
messages in queue but not yet preprocessed: 0

I don't think I did anything, I installed it, tested it and thought "kewl" and then after a while (don't remember doing anything that would have affected it) it just stopped processing...

K call this one weird but I recieved the mail I'd been sending finally...

I have a feeling it has something to do with changing the DNS name of the computer (by running /usr/local/src/qmail-1.03/config-fast viper) as I tried to change it this morning and it's not working again lol

Does anyone know any reason why this would act like this?

The dns name should be set to the name of the domain it is receiving mail for otherwise it may reject it. I'm not sure if this would cause a problem sending though.

I ended up rebooting my machine (had to get something from my windoze partition) and when I started Linux I ran `qmailctl stat` and noticed that the 2 messages i was testing with were waiting in the queue so I ran `qmailctl doqueue` and it worked fine

Thanks heaps for your help though
